Daesh Takfiri terrorists claimed responsibility for the attack

Troops on Saturday entered the Raqqa province for the first time since 2014, when Daesh (ISIS / ISIL) unleashed its ferocious campaign of terror in the Arab country.

A potential recapture of Raqqa in Syria and Mosul in northern Iraq is seen as the ultimate blow to Daesh. In Iraq, armed fighters have edged as close as 30 kilometers (18 miles) of the capital of Nineveh province.

According to the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, government troops were advancing on the Tabqa dam on the Euphrates River, some 40 km (25 miles) from Raqqa, on Saturday.

"Regime troops backed by Russian airstrikes and Russian-trained militia entered Raqqa province on Saturday morning for the first time since August 2014," said the observatory's director Rami Abdel Rahman.

The advancements followed heavy aerial attacks carried out on Friday in the eastern areas of Hama province which borders Raqqa.

Tal Abyad was cleared of Daesh last year. The town served as a launchpad for ISIS attacks given its proximity to Raqqa.

Earlier in 2016, Syrian forces liberated the ancient city of Palmyra in the sprawling central Homs province.

Syria has been gripped by foreign-backed militancy it blames on some regional and western governments. According to a February report by the Syrian Center for Policy Research, the conflict in Syria has claimed the lives of over 470,000 people in total since March 2011.

20 killed, dozens injured in massive car bomb explosion that has ripped through an area in the vicinity of the holy shrine of Hazrat Zaynab (PBUH) on the suburbs of the violence-plagued Syrian capital city, Damascus.

Syrian media said at least 15 people were killed and dozens of others injured on Saturday when the explosions hit near the holy shrine of Hazrat Zaynab (Peace Be Upon Her).

Sources said a bomber blew up his explosives vast at the entrance of the shrine, leaving several casualties among pilgrims, Syria’s official news agency SANA reported.

It was followed by a second explosion when an explosive-laden car parked on the nearby al-Tin street went off shortly afterwards.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility but Takfiri terrorists such as Daesh have hit the area at least three times this year, killing or injuring scores of people

A car bomb and an attacker wearing an explosive vest have struck an area close to a holy shrine on the suburbs of the Syrian capital, Damascus.

The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said at least 20 people were killed and dozens of others injured on Saturday when the explosions hit near the holy shrine of Hazrat Zaynab (Peace Be Upon Her).

Sources said a bomber blew up his explosives at the entrance of the shrine, leaving several casualties among pilgrims, Syria’s official news agency SANA reported.

It was followed by a second blast when an explosive-laden car parked on the nearby al-Tin street went off shortly afterwards. 

 Daesh Takfiri terrorists claimed responsibility for the attack. Daesh have hit the area at least three times this year, killing or injuring scores of people.

Syria has been gripped by foreign-backed militancy since March 2011. The United Nations (UN)’s Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura estimates that over 400,000 people have been killed in the conflict. The UN stopped its official casualty count in Syria more than two years ago, citing its increasing inability to verify the figures it received.
